Minimalist Baker's papaya dessert recipe transforms the fruit's exterior into a handy bowl. The healthy snack is inspired by traditional dessert floats and features a blend of banana ice cream and coconut yogurt toppings.

Once their seeds are scooped out, this recipe's papaya shells are filled with a healthy helping of ice cream and yogurt. The sugary mix is also flavored with a fresh fruit salad that consists of kiwi slices, cherries, blueberries, chia seeds and hemp seeds.

These papaya desserts also feature almond toppings that give them a crunchy taste. A healthy alternative to fruit cakes, this recipe is a light and refreshing choice for summer. For those looking to indulge in a healthy way, this gluten-free recipe is a winner.
